I will only be completing screen repairs on Saturdays for the rest of 2024. Any computers that I receive Monday through Friday will be completed on Saturday.

2009 MacBook Pro 15 inch laptop with LCD incident

This MacBook Pro suffered an “LCD incident” that caused vertical, multi-colored lines in the screen. The glass covering over the screen was not broken or cracked in the incident.

Older MacBook Pro Repairs

As you can see, this MacBook Pro is a 2009 model. While being 11 years is considered very old in computer years, there are some use cases where an older computer works for its user better than a new computer will.

It can be difficult to find shops that are able to source parts for older models as Apple usually stops producing any parts within a few years of the model release.

I do my best to find new parts for older machines, but if new parts are not available I can usually provide a custom quote for a used part. For this computer I am still able to get brand new LCD panels, so the repair was completed successfully and the user got their beloved MacBook Pro back fully operational.
